PREFACE. 


The  object  of  the  following  Genealogy  is  to 
preserve  from  oblivion  the  more  remote  history  of 
the  pioneer  ancestors  of  the  Fretz  family,  and  to 
place  upon  record  the  names  and  biographies  of  their 
descendants  from  father  to  son,  down  to  the  present 
time  and  generation.  For  many  years  the  author 
of  this  work  felt  a  desire  to  know  more  about  his 
ancestry,  and  the  particulars  connected  with  his 
progenitors  and  their  descendants  than  the  meager 
legends,  and  traditions  related  to  him  by  individual 
members  of  his  own  family. 

Consequently  during  the  winter  of  1872  he 
visited  among  the  connection  in  Bucks,  Co.,  Pa., 
collecting  such  facts,  and  data  as  were  accessible. 
It  was  the  original  intention  to  prepare  a  history 
of  his  own  branch  of  the  family  only,  but  having 
been  deeply  interested  in  the  work  himself,  he  also — 
naturally  awakened  a  like  interest  in  individuals  of 
the  other  branches.  It  was  then  decided  to  make  the 
history  a  general  one,  by  collecting,  and  introducing 
all  facts  that  could  be  so  arranged  without  making 
the  work  too  expensive  and  voluminous.  The  actual 
work  however  of  compiling  this  history  was  not 
begun  until  the  spring  of  1888.  The  task,  an  arduous 
one,  was  undertaken  none  too  soon. 


—   6  — 

It  should  have  been  begun  years  ago,  while  there 
were  yet  living  those  of  the  third  generation,  who 
could  have  given  more  satisfactory  information  of 
the  early  ancestors  that  would  be  of  great  interest, 
and  value  to  the  work,  but  which  with  their  demise 
is  forever  lost.  Already  the  ancestral  thread  was  lost 
to  many  who  were  unable  to  trace  their  lineage 
farther  than  to  the  grandfather,  or  were  totally 
unaware  of  the  fact  that  they  were  in  any  way 
connected  with  the  Fretz  family. 

Had  the  author  been  aware  of  the  gigantic  pro- 
portions the  work  would  assume,  in  tracing  the 
branches  and  whereabouts  of  many  of  the  descend- 
ants, and  collecting  the  necessary  information,  it  is 
more  than  probable  the  work  would  never  have  been 
undertaken.  It  is  to  be  regretted  that  the  records 
are  not  more  complete  in  many  of  the  branches. 
Owing  to  a  lack  of  interest  in  the  matter,  some,  for 
reasons  best  known  to  themselves,  failed  to  respond 
to  inquiries  for  information  concerning  their  respect- 
ive families,  thereby  causing  these  defects. 

The  work  has  been  prepared  at  a  greater  sacri- 
fice of  time  than  was  anticipated.  Had  all  promptly 
responded  to  communications  the  work  would  have 
been  far  easier.  The  writer  is  far  from  satisfied  with 
the  result  of  the  work.  He  is  aware  that  imperfec- 
tions exist,  but  pleads  in  extenuation  of  the  fact  that 
the  difficulties  were  insurmountable. 

The  author  acknowledges  himself  indebted  to 
the  many  friends  for  kind  favors  received  during  the 
compilation  of  this  work,  and  while  we  express  our 
sincere  gratitude  to  all  who  in  any  way  aided  us, 
we  especially  acknowledge  our  indebtedness  to  those 
who  have  very  materially  aided  us.  They  are  as 
follows:  C.  D.  Fretz,  M,  D.,  of  Sellersville,  Pa.,  Rev.

That  the  work  may  meet  with  general  approval 
is  the  earnest  wish  of  the

INTRODUCTION. 


The  history  of  the  Fretz  family  in  America^has 
hitherto  been  unpreserved  save  by  personal  recollec- 
tions transmitted  from  generation  to  generation  and 
by  such  information  as  may  be  found  in  family 
Bibles,  church  archives,  public  records,  etc.,  and  was 
fast  being  lost  to  the  world.  The  want  of  some 
accurate,  complete,  enduring  record  of  this  old  and 
numerous  stock  has  therefore  long  been  felt  and 
the  undersigned,  among  other  descendants  of  the 
blood,  finally  suggested  the  compilation  and  publica- 
tion of  a  formal  history  of  the  family.  The  collection 
of  the  information  it  was  at  once  apparent  would 
prove  a  gigantic  undertaking  and  ought  to  be  placed 
into  the  hands  of  one  peculiarly  fitted  for  that 
kind  of  work.  As  a  person  thus  fitted,  there  stood 
out  in  bold  relief  Rev.  A.  J.  Fretz,  and  he  was 
at  once  solicited  to  undertake  the  task.  He  kindly 
consented.  The  work  was  begun.  Descendants  were 
hunted  up,  grandfathers  and  grandmothers  inter- 
viewed, family  Bil)les  and  old  documents  rummaged, 
public  records  searched,  thousands  of  letters  written, 
years  of  labor  bestowed;  and  at  last  the  information 
attainable  is  about  all  attained,  the  work  goes  to 
press  and  to-day  we  present  to  posterity  and  to  the 
world  the  fruit  of  our  labors.    We  present  the  history 


—  9  — 

of  a  family  whose  settlement  in  this  country  dates  way 
back  beyond  the  Revolution,  whose  descendants  have 
spread  not  only  over  every  section  of  this  broad 
land  but  over  Canada  as  well,  and  whose  number  has 
already  grown  into  swelling  thousands.  We  present 
the  history  of  a  plain,  sturdy,  country  folk;  of  an 
industrious,  thrifty,  upright,  christian  people.  We 
present  the  history  of  an  ancestry  whereof  we  are 
justly  proud  and  whom  we  ever  delight  to  honor. 
We  present  the  history  of  a  people  whose  memory 
posterity  may  cherish  to  endless  day  and  whose  vir- 
tues the  world  may  well  emulate.  Up  to  the  present 
generation,  the  family  produced  few  (if  any)  profes- 
sional men.  It  was  a  people  of  peace  and  quiet.  It 
was  a  line  of  unassuming,  conscientious  sons  of  toil. 
Most  of  them  were  farmers.  A  few  of  them  adopted 
some  other  manual  pursuits.  But  the  generation 
of  to-day  is  not  confined  to  the  workshop  and  the 
farm.  It  graces  every  walk  in  life.  It  is  represented 
in  every  profession.  It  has  won  high  honors  among 
men.  It  has  made  its  mark  in  business,  in  the  school- 
room, in  journalism,  in  medicine,  at  the  bar,  on 
the  platform,  in  the  pulpit.  God  speed  the  new 
departure.  May  the  Fretz  descendants  freely  enter 
the  pursuit  for  which  their  tastes  and  capabilities  may 
fit  them;  may  they  keep  pace  with  the  car  of  prog- 
ress, may  they  aspire  to  every  thing  that  is  worthy 
and  honorable  but  may  they  never  forsake  the  vir- 
tues of  the  fathers  and  bring  shame  upon  an  honored 
name.  May  they  so  live  that  the  very  name  shall  be 
a  passport  to  respect,  confidence,  preferment.  Every 
man  every  hour  of  his  life,  whether  consciously  or 
unconsciously,  is  making  history  and  that  history 
either  is  to  his  credit  or  it  is  not.  May  the  Fretz 
posterity  ever  bear  this  truth  in  their  hearts  and  so 


—  10  — 

live  that  the  history  of  the  future  shall  be  as  resplen- 
dent as  the  history  of  the  past.  In  every  age  monu- 
ments have  been  reared  to  commemorate  noble  deeds 
and  illustrious  careers  and  it  is  fittino^  that  the  good 
men  do  be  immortalized — immortalized  in  bronze 
and  granite  and  marble,  immortalized  in  statue  and 
arch  and  splendid  pile.  In  every  age  the  notable 
works  of  men  have  been  inscribed  upon  the  annals 
and  it  is  meet  that  every  worthy  deed  should  be 
preserved  to  the  world.  There  is  a  monument,  an 
annal  for  good  things  done;  and  the  proudest  monu- 
ment, the  sweetest  annal  is  that  of  a  noble,  blameless 
life  written  on  the  hearts  and  wrought  into  the  lives 
of  men.  Though  the  chisel  may  never  inscribe, 
though  the  statue  may  never  preserve,  though  the 
page  may  never  contain  and  though  we  have  long 
been  sleeping  the  last  sleep  we  may  still  live — live 
from  age  to  age,  live  in  those  whom  we  in  life  have 
blest.  And  though  unmarbled,  unannaled,  unsung, 
unwept,  unremembered  our  names  may  be  inscribed 
on  the  book  of  life.  May  the  Fretz  descendants — 
though  worldly  honors  never  crown  their  heads, 
though  their  worth  and  works  are  unnoticed  of  men 
— strive,  whether  by  their  struggle  for  lofty  prizes 
or  by  the  beauty  of  their  quiet  lives,  at  least  to  vierit 
the  reward.  With  this  hope — this  prayerful  hope — 
we  present  and  commit  this  work  to  posterity  and 
to  the  world.

descendants  are  recorded  in  the  regular  order  of  birth,  from  the 
oldest  down  to  the  youngest  throughout  the  entire  connection, 
each  generation  being  marked  consecutively  from  first  to  last. 
The  Roman  numerals  placed  before  each  name  are  used  to 
designate  the  generation  to  which  they  belong,  as: —

THE  FRETZ  FAMILY  HISTORY. 


The  brothers  John,  and  Christian  Fretz,  together 
with  a  third  brother  (name  unknown,  and  who  died 
on  the  voyage),  emigrated  from  near  the  City  of  Man- 
hcim,  in  the  Grand  Duchy  of  Baden,  Germany,  for- 
merly known  as  the  Palatinate,  or  Rheinish  Prussia. 

They  were  of  German  origin,  as  is  quite  evident 
from  the  fact  that  they  wrote  and  spoke  the  German 
language,  and  were  connected  with  a  distinctively 
German  church.*  That  they  were  of  German  origin, 
is  also  evident  from  the  fact  that  on  the  opposite  side 
of  the  Rhine,  in  the  province  of  Alsatia,  there  are  to 
this  day,  living  where  they  have  lived  for  the  past 
two  or  three  centuries,  many  Fretz's  of  an  old  Alsa- 
tian Stock,  who  claim  they  are  of  German  origin, 
"as  all  true  Alsatians  are." 

The  Province  of  Alsatia  was  annexed  to  France 
in  1648,  prior  to  that  time  it  was  always  under  Ger- 
man Dominion,  and  while  the  French  language  was 
exclusively  taught  in  the  schools,  the  language  spoken 
is  a  German  dialect,  with  decided  variations  in  differ- 
ent localities. 


*  The  Meunonite  church,  of  which  Menno  Simon  (a  Hol- 
lander by  birth)  was  its  founder,  had  its  rise  in  Holland,  but 
eventually  spread  into  the  adjoining  countries  of  Germany  and 
Switzerland,  where  they  also  became  quite  numerous. 


—  14-  — 

At  what  port  the  Fretz  ancestors  landed,  or  the 
exact  date  of  their  arrival  into  this  country  is  not 
known,  but  may  have  been  between  the  years  of  1710 
and  1720.  It  is  said  that  they  came  to  this  country 
during  what  was  known  as  "the  last  persecution/^ 
They  were  given  the  alternative  of  connecting  them- 
selves with  the  state  church,  or  leave  the  country, 
and  they  chose  rather  than  to  give  up  their  religious 
liberty  to  leave  the  "Fatherland,'"'  the  land  of  their 
birth,  and  the  homes  of  their  kindred  and  friends,  the 
graves  of  their  ancestors,  and  all  the  hallowed  asso- 
ciations of  the  home  and  country  of  their  nativity, 
and  found  for  themselves  a  home  in  a  strange  and  far- 
off  land  where  they  could  worship  God  "  under  their 
own  vine  and  fig-tree,"  according  to  the  dictates  of 
their  own  conscience  without  fear  of  molestation. 

Undoubtedly  they  had  heard  that  America  af- 
forded a  refuge  for  the  oppressed  and  granted  reli- 
gious liberty  to  all  its  subjects,  and  naturally  enough 
they  turned  their  steps  hither,  where  they  too,  might 
enjoy  liberty  of  conscience.  And  thus  are  we,  as 
their  descendants,  citizens  of  this  great  liberty  loving 
country.  How  we,  of  to-day,  should  prize  this 
liberty!  Think  what  our  Ancestors  sacrificed  to  en- 
joy it.  How  they  left  their  native  land,  a  country 
established  many  hundreds  of  years,  to  seek  a  home 
in  the  new  world,  in  the  wilds  of  America. 

They  came  about  thirty-five  years  after  the  char- 
ter was  granted,  and  the  great  seal  of  England,  with 
the  signature  of  Charles  H.  was  afiixed,  and  William 
Penn  became  the  proprietor  of  Pennsylvania.  They 
were  here  about  thirty-five  years  before  the  French 
and  Indian  war,  in  which  George  Washington,  was  a 
British  Colonel.  Our  first  ancestor,  John  Fretz, 
slept  beneath  the  sod  before  the  fires  of  the  Revolu- 


—  15  — 

tion  were  kindled,  or  al)out  three  years  before  the 
battle  of  Lexington. 

They  came  when  the  country  was  but  sparsely 
settled,  when  the  inconveniences  were  great,  and 
when  the  equally  dangerous  red  man  infested  the  land. 
They  were  still  living  during  the  period  when  some 
of  the  great  subjects  which  eventually  led  to  the  war 
of  the  Revolution  were  being  agitated,  and  their  chil- 
dren were  settled  with  families  during  the  bloody 
struggle  for  Independence,  and  although  being — non- 
combatants,  they  were  true  and  loyal  to  the  American 
cause,  and  aided  it  as  best  they  could,  without  com- 
promising their  religious  faith  by  bearing  arms. 

Our  ancestors  and  their  immediate  descendants 
were  Mennonites,  who  worshiped  at  Deep  Run,  Bucks 
Co.,  Pa.,  first  in  the  old  log  church,  which  was  prob- 
ably built  in  IT^G,  and  later  in  the  old  stone  church, 
built  in  1766,  and  which  stood  for  over  a  hundred 
years.  They  no  doubt  aided  in  erecting  this  church, 
both  by  contributing  of  their  means  and  labor,  and 
from  it  they  were  carried  to  their  last  earthly  resting 
place  in  the  cemetery  adjoining.  There  may  their  ashes 
rest  in  peace  until  the  trump  of  Gabriel  shall  awake 
the  dead  to  come  forth,  and  obtain  the  inheritance  of 
the  faithful. 

Which  of  the  two  brothers  was  the  elder  is  not 
known  as  no  records  of  the  birth  of  either  have  been 
found. 

Christian,  settled  in  Tinicum  township,  Bucks 
Co.,  Pa.,  along  the  Tinicum  Creek,  on  what  is  now 
known  as  Heaney's  Mill. 

It  is  not  known  where  John  Fretz  at  first  settled. 
He  afterward  settled  in  what  was  then  Plumstead 
township,  but  now  Bedminster,  on  what  is  kno^vn  as 
the  Old  Fretz  Homestead,   situated  about  one  mile 


-U  - 

North  East  of  Bedminsterville,   now  owned  by  Ely 
Fretz,  and  occupied  by  his  son,  Mahlon  M.  Fretz. 

The  homestead  originally  consisted  of  230  acres 
of  land,  which  John  Fretz  purchased  of  Bartholomew 
Longstreth  in  1737  or  1738,  for  which  he  paid  106 
pounds.  The  release  being  given  in  the  latter  year 
in  the  month  of  May.  The  tract  when  purchased 
had  a  house,  barn,  and  other  buildings,  but  was  sur- 
rounded on  all  sides  by  vacant  and  unimproved  wild 
land.  A  veritable  wilderness.  The  homestead  now 
includes  the  whole  or  part  of  four  farms — viz,  Samuel 
High's  69  acres,  Ely  Fretz's  57  acres,  Isaac  L.  Fretz's 
44  acres,  and  Reuben  Miller's  60  acres.  John  Fretz 
was  a  weaver  by  trade,  and  is  known  as  "Weaver 
John."  Of  his  public  services  nothing  is  known  of 
especial  interest  further  than  that  he  was  one  of  the 
committee  to  form  the  new  township  of  Bedminster 
in  1741. 

He  was  twice  married,  but  the  maiden  name  of 
neither  wife  is  known.  By  his  first  wife  Barbara,  he 
is  known  to  have  had  five  children,  and  by  his  second 
wife,  Maria,  three.  There  may  have  been  more,  but 
if  there  were  they  died  young. 

John  Fretz  died  in  1772,  probably  in  February. 
His  last  will  and  testament,  was  dated  January  29, 
1772,  and  was  probated  on  the  third  day  of  March  of 
the  same  year,  which  shows  that  he  died  between  the 
two  dates  given.  The  provisions  of  the  will  were  that 
his  son  Christian  should  have  the  farm,  and  pay  800 
pounds,  and  each  of  the  children  were  to  have  equal 
shares,  except  the  sum  of  60  pounds  which  was  to  be 
tlistributed  among  the  children  of  his  first  wife,  and 
which  came  fi*om  their*  Grandfather,  (probably  on  the 
mother's  side.) 


-  17  — 

To  the  widow  was  willed  a  100  pounds  of  which 
she  was  to  receive  the  interest  as  long  as  she  remained 
his  widow.  She  was  to  have  the  house  in  which 
George  White  lived  at  that  time. 

The  last  Will  and  Testament  of  John  Fretz,  as 
an  old  and  rather  peculiar  document,  will  no  doubt  be 
interesting  reading,  and  of  sufficient  importance  to 
warrant  its  insertion  in  the  history  of  the  connection, 
and  it  is  herewith  produced — entire  as  follows:

DESCENDANTS  OF  JOHN   FRETZ, 
SON  OF  WEAVER  JOHN. 


II.  John  Fretz  (son  of  Weaver  John)  was  born 
Mar.  1730;  died  May  4th,  1826,  aged  96  years.  Mar- 
ried Mary  Kolb,  of  Tinicmn  Twp.,  Bucks  Co.,  Pa., 
in  1751.     She  was  born  Sept.  10th,  1730,  died 

He  lived  previous  to,  and  at  the  time  of  his 
fathers  death,  in  Haycock  Twp.,  Pa.,  on  the  To- 
hickon,  where  he  owned  and  run  a  mill.  He  after- 
wards moved  below  Doylestown. 

In  1800  he  emigrated  to  Canada  with  all  of  his 
family  except  his  daughter  Barbara,  who  married 
Jacob  Silvius,  and  remained  with  her  family  in  Bucks 
Co.,  and  Moses,  who  went  out  to  Canada  the  year 
previous.  The  journey  to  Canada  was  in  wagons, 
and  on  foot.  The  old  people  rode  and  the  younger 
members  of  the  family  walked.  It  is  said  that  Mrs. 
Hippie  carried  her  child  aU  the  way  to  Canada  on  foot. 

The  journey  was  a  very  tedious  one,  through  the 
thinly  settled  wilderness.  In  some  places  they  had 
to  cut  a  road  through  the  forests,  and  for  lack  of 
bridges  they  had  to  ford  the  streams.  Thus  on  their 
way  they  experienced  many  inconveniencies  and 
hardships.  On  one  occasion  near  the  close  of  the 
day,  something  broke  about  the  wagon,  without  the 
repair  of  which  they  could  not  proceed,  so  one  of  the 
boys  took  a  horse  from  the  wagon,  rode  back  twenty 
miles  to  the  nearest  blacksmith  shop  where  the  iron 


22  

was  repaired,  and  returned  arriving  at  early  dawn, 
when  the  horse  was  pet  to  the  wagon,  and  the  jour- 
ney continued.  An  incident  which  will  serve  to  show 
the  spirit  of  John  Fretz,  occurred  during  his  resi- 
dence in  Pennsylvania,  It  was  during  the  early  days 
of  the  Revolution.  The  patriot  army  being  some- 
what destitute  of  arms,  the  soldiers  went  from  house 
to  house  collecting  guns  for  the  army,  from  the 
settlers.  On  coming  to  his  house  they  asked  for  his 
gun.  He  took  the  weapon  from  its  accustomed  place, 
and  replied  to  the  soldiers  sa3dng,  "Yes,  you  can 
have  my  gun,  but  I'll  keep  hold  of  the  butt  end  of 
it."  In  1801,  the  first  Mennonite  church  was  estab- 
lished in  Canada, — known  as  Moyer's  church.  Of 
this  church  he  was  ordained  Deacon  in  1801,  being 
the  first  Deacon  of  the  Mennonite  church  in  Canada. 
Among  the  relics  retained  of  the  home  of  John 
Fretz,  is  a  barrel  churn  of  white  cedar,  made  by  him 
in  Bucks  Co.,  Pa.,  ninety-four  years  ago  (1796)  for 
his  daughter  Elizabeth,  wife  of  Abraham  Grobb,  and 
is  now  owned  by  John  Grobb,  grandson  of  Eliza-

summer.  Before  he  was  quite  sev^enteen,  he  obtained 
a  certificate  to  teach,  and  on  Jan.  1,  1870,  took

finement, and  the  loss  of  two  of  his  children  so  wore 
upon  his  health,  that  in  1883  he  resigned  his  position 
to  seek  some  more  active  out  door  life.  During  the 
same  year  he  began  the  study  of  medicine,  and  the

he  was  22  years  of  age,  serving  one  year  as  journey-

DESCENDANTS  OF  CHRISTIAN  FRETZ, 
SON  OF  WEAVER  JOHN. 


II.  Christian  Fretz,  (son  of  Weaver  John)  was  born 
in  1734.  He  married  Barbara  Oberholtzer  in  1757. 
She  was  born  Nov.  20,  1737.  Their  married  life  ran 
through  a  course  of  forty-six  years.  He  died  May  1, 
1803.  His  wife  survived  him  twenty  years,  and 
died  May  8,  1823.  It  is  a  noteworthy  fact 'that  at  the 
time  of  her  death,  she  w^as  the  mother  of  twelve  chil- 
dren, had  a  hundred  and  nine  grand  children,  and  a 
hundred  and  three  great  grand  children.  Previous  to 
his  father's  death,  Christian,  and  his  l^rother  Isaac, 
lived  on  what  isjknown  as  the  Isaac  Fretz'  homestead, 
situated  in  Tinicum  Twp.,  now  owned  by  Henry  F. 
Myers.  He  was  one  of  the  executors  of  his  father's 
estate,  and  inherited  the  old  homestead  in  Bedmin- 
ster  under  the  conditions  previously  mentioned  in  the 
will,  and  where  he  subsequently  lived  and  died.  To 
the  homestead  he  added  by  purchase  from  his  son 
John,  the  tract  known  as  the  "Poor  Fields,"  in  1793, 
and  which  consisted  of  about  30  acres.  He  and  his 
wife  were  members  of  the  Mennonite  church,  and 
worshiped  in  the  ever  memoral)le  Old  Stone  Church 
at  Deep  Run,  which  was  the  oldest  Mennonite  con- 
gregation in  Bucks  county.  In  his  day  the  Indians 
were  yet  quite  numerous,  and  often  quite  trouble- 
some. It  is  related  that  he  had  a  very  fine  horse,  to 
which  the  Indians  took  a  particular  fancy,  and 
wanted  to  buy,  but  he  would  not  sell  it.  The  Indians 
however,  determining  to  gain  possession  of  the  horse, 
camp  by  night  and  stole  it     Some  time  after,  he 


— •  135  — 

ascertained  where  the  horse  was,  and  went  to  the 
Indian  camp,  arriving  at  evening,  and  seeing  the 
horse  turned  out  to  pasture,  he  ceneealed  himself 
until  slumber  had  fallen  upon  the  inhabitants  of  the 
Avigwam.  The  Indians  had  a  custom  of  just  before 
retiring  for  the  night,  to  go  outside  of  their  wigwams 
and  shout  and  make  a  great  noise  to  frighten  away 
the  Mdld  beasts.  Knowing  this  to  be  the  signal  for 
retiring,  he  waited  until  he  thought  they  were  sound 
asleep,  and  then  entered  the  lot,  secured  the  horse, 
and  returned  home  with  it.  It  is  also  related  that  his 
son  Joseph  had  a  very  tine  young  horse,  and  that 
during  the  Revolutionary  war,  when  Washington's 
Army  was  encamped  below  Newtown,  that  foraging 
teams,  accompanied  by  an  officer  on  horseback,  came 
to  Christian  Fretz's  place  for  hay  for  the  army,  that 
the  officer  saw  the  horse,  and  in  conversation  with 
the  foragemen,  said  it  was  a  fine  horse,  that  he  would 
try  and  buy  it,  but  if  he  could  not  buy  it,  he  would 
have  it  an}'way.  The  conversation  between  the 
officer  and  men  was  over-heard  by  one  of  Christian's 
daughters,  who  ran  to  the  house  and  told  her  brother, 
who  was  sitting  at  the  loom  weaving.  As  the  officer 
was  coming  to  the  house  by  the  front  way,  to  see  him 
about  the  horse,  he  not  wishing  to  part  with  it, 
leaped  through  the  window,  ran  to  the  barn  by  the 
back  way  unobserved  by  the  officer,  mounted  the 
horse,  and  rode  towards  the  Haycock  Mountain'.  The 
officer  however  saw  him  as  he  dashed  away  with  the 
horse,  and  followed  some  distance  until  he  lost  track 
of  him.  He  rode  the  horse  up  through  the  wilder- 
ness countr}',  a  part  of  the  time  fording  up  the 
streams  to  cover  his  tracks  and  hid  the  horse  at  the 
place  now  known  as  Shellenberger's  mill.  A  few 
days  later  the  officer  came  again  to  Christian's  place, 
and  told  him  that  he  icould  have  that  horse. 

The  next  day,  however.  Christian  accompanied  by 
a  neighbor  went  to  the  Encampment  at  Newtown, 
and  laid  the  matter  before  the  General  in  command. 
The  General  gave  him  a  writing  of  protection,  told 
him  not  to  trouble  himself  about  the  horse,  and  if  the 
office}:  sbpukl  come  around  ag'ain,  to  hand  bin>  that 


—  136  — 

paper.  In  a  few  days  the  officer  came  the  second 
time,  and  very  impiidentl}'  made  demands  for  the 
horse,  whereupon  Christian  handed  him  the  paper 
from  the  General  in  command.  He  looked  it  over, 
dropped,  it  and  left.  Among  the  relics  of  Christian 
Fretz's  home  is  a  table  now  owned  by  Mrs.  Lapp, 
who  lives  at  the  Doylestown  Mennonite  meeting 
house,  which  was  used  in  his  family,  and  on  which 
he,  being  a  wealthy  man,  counted  his  money.  The 
table  was  bought  at  the  puljlic  sale  of  Christian 
Fretz's  effects  by  Joseph  Wisler,  and  is  now  in  pos- 
session of  his  daughter,  Mrs.  Lapp.  The  children  of 
Christian  and  Barbara  Fretz,  in  the  order  of  their 
birth  are,  viz:  John,  Agnes,  Joseph,  Henry,  Martin, 
Jacob,  Abraham,  Isaac,  Barbara,  Christian,  Mary,

tract  to  Christian  Fretz  for  the  sum  of  fifty  pounds. 
At  the  time  of  this  sale  he  was  a  resident  of  A\  arwick. 
In  1790  while  yet  residing  in  Bedminster  Township, 
he  purchased  of  John  Thomas,  a  tract  of  130  acres  in

In  1792,  he  bought  299i  acres  in  Warwick  Township,

classical  course.  But  during  his  college  career  his 
mind  was  turned  toward  the  ministry  and  when  he 
entered  the  junior  year  it  was  with  the  desire,  if  the

grew  until  like  Paul  he  could  l)ut  exclaim,  ''Woe  is 
me  if  I  preach  not  the  Gospel,"  and  therefore  he  de- 
cided, before  the  junior  year  had  closed  that  if  the

in  which  he  lived,  so  much  so  that  at  the  close  of  the 
war,  which  left  the  rebel  states  without  the  protec- 
tion of  law  and  order  of  any  kind,  the  whole  com- 
munity insisted  on  his  acting  as  County  Magistrate 
which  office  he  filled  until  reconstruction  of  the  state 
government  was  effected  under  Authority  of  Con- 
gress of  U.  S.  It  was  well  understood  all  through 
the  war  that  he  was  a  Union  man,  but  he  did  not 
make  himself  obnoxious  by  ill  judged  intrusion  of 
his  sentiments  upon  others  in  that  section,  where  it 
could  do  no  good.  Thus  he  was  left  alone  during  the 
war  except  that  the  armies  of  both  sides  encamped 
on  his  place  at  Thoroughfare  Gap,  repeatedly  and 
left  neither  fence,  or  living  thing  of  stock  on  the 
place.  His  losses  in  property  and  monej^  caused  by 
the  war  was  about  $40,000.

V.  Hen  ry  Z.  Gill,  M.  D. ,  L.  L.  D. ,  born  in  Northampton 
township,  Bucks  Co.,  Pa.,  Oct.  6,  1831.  Mrd.  Miss 
Mattie  W.  Carpenter,  of  Columbus,  Ohio,  April  21, 
1869.  She  being  the  only  daughter  of  Timothy  R. 
Carpenter.  After  completing  his  twenty-first  year 
at  home  (at  the  place  of  birth),  he  went  to  a  select 
school  kr>.pt  by  John  Clark,  A.  M.,  about  two  miles 
north  of  New  Britain  church,  remaining  several 
months.  He  then  returned  home,  taught  school  for 
ten  months  in  Plymouth  Township,  Montgomery  Co. . 
Pa.  Some  time  in  1854  he  taught  a  term  of  school 
near  Columbus,  Ohio.  Having  injured  his  eyes  by 
too  close  application  to  study,  he  consulted  a  physi- 
cian— connected  with  a  College  Eye  Infirmary,  com- 
menced treatment,  and  after  his  school  term  was 
completed,  by  the  physician's  suggestion  and  recom- 
mendation, he  commenced  the  study  of  medicine. 
His  original  purpose  having  been  to  stud}^  civil  engi- 
neering. After  attending  a  course  and  a  half  of 
lectures,  and  close  reading  till  the  fall  of  1846  he  went 
to  Jefferson  Medical  College  at  Philadelphia,  Pa., 
from  which  he  grad'tit^d  m  March,  1857.  During 
his  time  of  study  in  Columbus,  Ohio,  he  had  charge 
of  the  dissecting  room,  and  aided  in  the  Eye  Infirm- 
aiy,     These  two  eircnmstances  g^ve  him  a  taste  for 


—  150  — 

■surgery,  and  diseases  of  the  eye,  which  were  not 
neglected,  and  were  of  much  advantage  to  him  in  the 
general  practice  of  his  profession.  After  graduating 
he  returned  to  Columbus,  Ohio,  and  commenced  to 
practice,  giving  especial  attention  to  the  eye  and  ear 
though  not  abandoning  the  general  practice.  The 
war  breaking  out  in  1861,  a  call  was  made  for  medi- 
cal men,  a  law  being  passed  requiring  all  to  pass 
examination;  five  years  of  practice  being  required, 
or  its  equivalent  in  hospital  for  assistants,  and  ten 
years  for  surgeons.  Although  in  the  examinations 
he  and  another  stood  equal  (third)  in  the  list  of  over 
fifty  admitted  to  examination,  yet  he  could  be  ap- 
pointed assistant  only.  In  the  summer  campaign  in 
West  Virginia,  he  had  the  entire  work  of  the  Regiment 
until  winter,  when  he  had  the  first  severe  sickness  of 
his  life,  and  from  which  he  probably  never  fully  recov- 
ered. The  next  summer  (1862)  foreseeing  the  probable 
same  experience  of  all  the  work  with  part  of  the  pay  of 
surgeon,  he  resigned,  and  was  in  a  few  days  appointed 
Surgeon  of  another  Regiment,  the  95th  O.  The  former 
being  the  11th  Ohio  Infantr}^  They  were  immediately 
sent  to  the  field  in  Kentucky;  and  on  August  30, 
1862  and  engaged  in  the  battle  (three  engagements  in 
one  day)  of  Richmond,  Ky.,  where  a  large  part  of 
the  regiment  were  captured,  and  many  killed  and 
wounded.  Remaining  six  weeks  in  the  enemies'  hands 
with  the  wounded,  they  returned  paroled  to  Columbus, 
Ohio  in  October,  and  prepared  for  the  work  of  1863, 
down  the  Mississippi  River,  and  the  seige  of  Vicks- 
burgh,  in  all  of  which  he  (Dr.  Gill)  participated. 
After  that  campaign  and  the  second  attack  on  Jack- 
son, Miss.,  they  spent  the  fall  and  winter  in  scout- 
ing, and  doing  guard  duty.  He  had  applied  for  per- 
mission to  ap]:)ear  before  the  United  States  Medical 
board  for  examination  for  Surgeon  of  Volunteers,  a 
higher  ]:)Osition  than  Surgeon  of  a  Regiment,  though 
of  the  same  rank  (Major  of  Cavalry).  The  number 
of  such  was  limited  by  law  of  Congress.  A  ten 
days'  examination  satisfied  the  authorities  and  he 
received  his  commission  from  Abraham  Lincoln.  (It 
is  believed  the  first  vacancy).     He  was  at  once  sent 


—  151  — 

to  the  Atlantic  Campaign,  and  very  early  assigned  as 
Surgeon  in  chief  of  the  first  Division,  20th  Army 
Corps,  Gen.  Joe  Hooker's  fighting  corps.  This  posi- 
tion he  held  to  the  close  of  the  war,  finishing  the 
Atlantic  campaign,  the  famous  march  to  the  sea,  the 
Carolina  Campaign,  and  so  on  to  the  great  Review  at 
Washington  in  1865.  He  went  with  the  Western 
troops,  west  to  Louisville,  Ky.,  and  was  honorably 
mustered  out  in  August  1865.  Spent  the  fall  in 
travelinof,  the  winter  at  the  Jefferson  Medical  College. 
In  May  1866  he  sailed  for  Europe  where  he  spent  two 
years  of  hard  study  in  hospitals,  sixteen  months  in 
Germany,  the  remainder  of  the  time  in  Paris,  Geneva, 
and  London,  and  returned  to  New  York  in  May  1868, 
and  recommenced  the  practice  of  his  profession  in 
St.  Louis,  in  Oct. ,  1868.  There  he  practiced  and  was 
associate  editor  of  the  St.  Louis  Medical  and  Surgi- 
cal Journal  until  1873.  When  at  the  solicitation  of 
friends  he  removed  to  Jersey ville.  111.  About  1875 
or  6,  the  degree  of  A.  M.  was  conferred  on  Dr.  Gill 
by  McKendree  College,  Lelianon,  111. ,  and  the  degree 
of  L.L.D.  by  the  University  of  Wooster,  Ohio  in 
1885,  the  Medical  Department  of  which  was  located 
in  Cleveland,  O.,  where  he  was  living  and  lecturing 
in  the  Medical  College,  occupjdng  the  chair  of  Clini- 
cal Surgery.  In  1881  he  was  appointed  Physician  to 
Southern  lillinois  Penitentiary,  where  he  did  some  of 
his  best  work.  In  March  1865  he  received  the  first 
Brevet  (Lt.  Colonel)  of  any  medical  officer  from  the 
state  of  Ohio.  From  Chester,  111.,  (Southern  111. 
Penitentiary),  he  was  urged  to  take  the  chair  of  Sur- 
gery in  the  Medical  Department  of  the  University  of 
Wooster,  at  Cleveland,  Ohio,  which  position  he 
filled  for  over  two  j^ears.  then  resigned  on  account 
of  over  work,  and  sevei'it}'  of  climate.  In  Oct.,  1886, 
he  removed  to  El  Dorado,  Butler  Co. ,  Kansas.  Hav- 
ing at  that  time  just  completed  his  work  on  '' Diph- 
theria, Croup  and  Tracheotomy,"  a  work  which  cost 
him  much  labor.  In  the  spring  of  1855,  Dr.  Gill 
joined  the  M.  E.  church,  of  which  he  has  been  a 
member  ever  since,  and  has  held  every  official  posi- 
tion up  to  President  of  the  "Lay  Electoral  Confer-

71y.,  Im.,  19d.  Farmer  and  Linseed  Oil  manufr.  He 
lived  in  Hilltown  Twp. ,  near  Yost's  Mill,  on  the  farm 
now  occupied  by  Jacob  Smith.  He  was  an  honest, 
upright  man,  and  held  in  high  esteem.  As  a  chris- 
tian,"he  endeavored  faithfully  to  discharge  his  religious 
duties,  in  all  of  which  he  was  conscientiously  strict. 
He  never  allowed  any  member  of  his  family  to  leave 
the  church  before  the  benediction  was  pronounced.  An 
adage  of  his  was:  "Wernausgeht  vor  dem  segen, 
geht  dem  fluch  entgegen."  Though  at  times  taking 
a  smoke,  it  was  a  saying  of  his,  "That  he  never 
wanted  to  be  a  slave  to  tobacco  or  whisky."  In  the 
time  of  the  subject  of  this  sketch,  many  of  the  lux- 
uries of  the  present  day  were  not  enjoyed.  There 
were  no  carpets,  and  no  parlor  matches  in  those  days. 
Sometimes  they  had  to  go  to  neighbors  for  fire,  and 
on  one  occasion  the  Fretz'  meadow  was  set  on  fire  by 
borrowed  fire.  For  the  married  girls  in  those  days 
the  dry  goods  outfit  was  mostly  home-made.  The 
spinning  wheel  was  one  of  the  fixtures  of  the  family, 
and  in  this  family  of  ten  girls  there  were  six  spinning

wheels  going  at  one  time,  commeneing  at  5  o'clock  in 
the  morning,  and  continuing  until  10  and  11  P.  M. 
One  of  the  daughters,  Mrs.  Susanna  Funk,  generally 
spun  18  cuts  of  flax  per  day,  and  one  day  she  spun 
20  cuts.  The  reel  and  the  shaving  bench  were  in 
the  same  room.  Martin  Fretz  was  one  of  the  first 
to  get  a  Dearborn  pleasure  wagon.  Bows  and  cover 
were  taken  along,  and  if  wanted,  in  case  of  rain,  were 
put  up.  Among  the  relics  of  this  home  is  a  bar  of 
soap  made  by  his  wife  in  1816,  one  of  her  last  acts, 
now  in  the  possession  of  a  grand-daughter,  Esther 
Hunsberger,  of  Dublin,  Pa.  Martin  Fretz  was  twice 
married.  His  first  wife  was  Anna  Kratz,  by  whom  he 
had  fifteen  children.  She  was  born  Sept.  11, 1768;  died 
June  24,  1816.  He  married  for  his  second  wife  Anna 
Licey — .  They  were  members  of  the  Mennonite 
church  at  Blooming  Glen,  where  he  and  his  wives  lie 
buried.  The  children,  all  by  the  first  wife,  are:  Bar-

dence of  five  years  in  Chicago,  he  went  to  Elkhart, 
and  there  entered  into  a  copartnership  with  his 
brother,  under  the  firm  name  of  John  F.  Funk  & 
Brother,  as  publishers  and  booksellers.  They  con- 
tinued the  publication  of  the  Herald  of  Truth,  and 
Der  Hcrold  der  Wahrheit,  and  also  issued  during  the 
continuance  of  the  co-partnership  a  number  of  relig- 
ious works,  the  most  important  of  which  was  the 
great  book  of  Martyrs,  in  the  German  language,  con- 
taining over  1100  quarto  pages,  and  the  complete 
works  of  Menno  Simon,  which  was  translated  from 
the  Holland  and  printed  in  English.  In  1875  he 
became  one  of  the  principal  stock-holders  in  the  Men-

nonite  Publishing  Co. ,  which  was  then  organized,  and 
has  since  held  the  position  of  Secretary  and  Treasurer 
of  that  institution.  He  married  Annie  M.  Landis, 
daughter  of  Joseph  and  Mary  (Geil)  Landis,  of 
Greer's  corner,  near  Dublin,  Bucks  Co.,  Pa.,  Mar.

V.  Jacob  Silas  Funk  was  born  in  Hilltown  Twp., 
Bucks  Co.,  Pa.,  Apr.  13,  1842.  He  spent  his  early 
days  on  his  father's  farm,  and  received  as  was  cus- 
tomary in  those  days,  a  fair,  common  school  educa- 
tion. He  afterwards,  during  the  early  part  of  1862 
and  the  summer  of  1863,  spent  two  terms  at  the 
Excelsior  Normal  Institute,  at  Carversville,  Bucks 
Co.  He  taught  in  the  schools  of  his  native  county, 
from  1862  to  1865.  In  the  spring  of  1865  he  gave  up 
that  vocation  and  went  to  Chicago,  111.,  and  engaged 
in  the  Lunber  business.  On  the  28th  of  Sept.,  of 
the  same  year  he  purchased  a  scholarship  in  the  East- 
man Business  College  of  that  city,  and  took  a  com- 
mercial course,  attending  evenings  only.  After  four 
years'  residence  in  Chicago,  he  determined  to  engage 
in  business  for  himself,  and  accordinglj^,  in  the  spring 
of  1869,  located  at  Chillicothe,  Mo.,  where  he  opened 
a  lumber  yard  and  commenced  business  on  his  own 
account.  On  the  15th  of  January  following  (1870), 
he  was  married  to  Annie  K.  Stover,  daughter  of 
Jonas  Stover,  of  E.  Rockhill  Twp.,  Bucks  Co.,  Pa. 
He  afterwards  became  connected  with  the  North 
Western  Lumber  Co.,  who  had  their  mills  at  Eau 
Claire,  Wisconsin,  and  extensive  yards  at  Hannibal, 
Mo.;  and  on  the  20th  of  Apr.,  1880,  moved  with  his 
family,  from  Chillicothe  to  Hannibal.  Afterwards 
when  the  duties  of  his  position  required  him  to  be 
mostly  in  the  neighborhood  where  the  mills  of  the 
company  were  located,  he  found  it  more  economical 
and  convenient  to  have  his  family  in  that  vicinity 
also,  and  accordingly,  on  the  20th  of  July,  1885, 
removed  to  Minneapolis,  Minn.  He  continued  with 
the  above  firm  eleven  years,  during  which  time  he 
gained  with  them  the  highest  esteem  and  respect, 
both  for  his  conscientious  business  integrity  and  his 


-  212  — 

excellent  qualifications  for  the  work  in  which  he  was 
engacred.  In  the  spring  of  1890  he  severed  his  rela- 
tions with  N.  W.  Lumber  Co.,  but  the  warm  feeling 
of  esteem  and  respect  which  he  had  won  for  himself 
during  these  extended  business  relations,  continued 
to  the  end  of  his  life.  He  took  an  active  part  in  the 
various  civil,  social  and  religious  movements  of  the 
day,  and  was  always  ready  and  willing  to  assist  in  all 
enterprises  of  public  interest,  and  held  continuously 
positions  of  responsibility  and  honor.  Soon  after  his 
removal  to  Chillicothe,  in  1869,  he  was  elected  super- 
intendent of  the  Sunday  School  of  the  Presbyterian 
church  of  that  city,  which  position  he  held  until  his 
removal  to  Hannibal  in  1880,  He  was  converted  and 
united  with  the  Third  Presbyterian  Church  of  Chicago 
during  the  time  of  his  residence  there.  In  1871  or  72 
he  was  elected  elder  of  the  First  Presbyterian  Church 
of  Chillicothe,  He  was  secretary  of  the  School  Board 
of  that  city,  and  through  his  influence,  was  built  the 
beautiful  new  school  building,  costing  from  $45,000 
to  $50,000.  In  1875  he  was  also  member  of  the  City 
Council.  During  the  last  three  years  of  his  residence 
in  Chillicothe  he  was  correspondent  of  the  "Globe 
Democrat,''  a  Republican  paper  of  St.  Louis.  During 
the  summer  of  1890,  after  severing  his  connection 
with  the  N,  W.  L.  Co.,  he,  with  A,  Fiero,  was 
appointed,  by  the  Lumber  Manufacturers  of  the  N. 
W,,  to  inspect  the  system  of  grading  employed  by 
the  leading  manufacturers  of  the  northwest,  and  their 
report  was  received  with  much  favor  and  satisfaction. 
After  the  completion  of  this  commission,  he  became 
connected  with  the  T,  B.  Scott  Lumber  Co.,  of  Mer- 
rill, Wis.,  and  during  a  business  trip  through  Illinois 
ancl  Indiana  he  was  taken  sick  with  a  severe  bilious 
attack,  and  after  nearly  a  week  of  suffering  in  hotels, 
in  Terre  Haute,  Ind.,  Chicago,  111.,  and  on  the  road, 
he  reached  his  home  in  Minneapolis,  Minn.,  on  the 
22d  of  Sept.  The  disease  assumed  a  complicated 
form  which  resulted  in  blood  poisoning,  and  after 
three  weeks  more  of  intense  sufl'ering,  which  he  bore 
with  patience,  he  died  on  the  15th  of  October,  1890, 
aged  18  y.,  6  m.  and  2  d,    Presbyterians.    Children:

Co.,  Pa.,  Jan.  1,  1814;  died  Dec.  11,  1858.  At  an, 
early  age  she  lost  her  mother,  and  the  only  remem- 
brances she  had  of  her  fond  parent  were  the  recollec- 
tions of  early  childhood.  It  is  related  that  on  the 
clay  of  her  mother's  funeral,  she  stood  beside  her 
casket,  calling  her  mamma  to  listen  to  her  child-like 
questions.  She  received  such  educational  advantages 
as  the  public  Schools,  of  that  early  period,  afforded. 
She  read  both  German  and  English  well,  and  in  later 
years,  the  reading  of  German  Poetry  afforded  her 
especial  pleasure.  She  was  a  constant  reader  of  the 
Bible,  and  delighted  to  call  the  attention  of  her  own 
famih"  to  the  beauty  of  its  precepts.  She  was  mar- 
ried to  Henry  S.  Krout,  of  Bedminster,  Nov.  2,  1835. 


—  217  — 

He  was  born  Apr.  10,  1810;  died  May  30,  1888.  They 
lived  near  Line  Lexington  for  eight  years.  Then 
moved  to  the  homestead  of  the  Krout  family,  on  the 
Deep  Run,  where  six  more  years  of  their  busy  lives 
were  spent  in  tilling  the  soil  that  had  been  cultivated 
for  more  then  a  century  by  the  paternal  ancestral 
line.  While  residing  here  they  determined  to  own  a 
home  of  their  own,  and  purchased  and  occupied  the 
Kramer  farm,  on  the  east  branch  of  Perkiomen  Creek. 
While  living  here  the  family  ties  were  broken.  The 
mother  having  contracted  consumption,  was  called  to 
precede  the  rest  of  the  family  circle  and  join  the 
great  majority  in  the  eternal  world  beyond  the  shad- 
owy vale.  She  was  a  truly  pious  mother,  and  her 
chief  care  was  to  bring  up  her  children  in  the  nurture 
and  admonition  of  the  Lord.  Above  all  she  loved 
her  family,  her  church,  her  Savior,  and  her  God.  They 
were  members  of  the  Mennonite  Church  at  Deep 
Run.    Children:  Jacob,  Martin,  Abraham,  John. 

V.  Jacob  F.  Krout,  born  in  Bucks  Co.,  Pa.,  Oct.  29, 
1836.  He  always  lived  under  the  parental  roof,  and 
after  the  decease  of  his  father,  came  into  possession 
of  the  homestead,  in  Bedminster,  where  he  is  the 
proprietor  of  the  farm  and  the  Bedminster  Nursery 
of  Fruit  and  Ornamental  Trees.  By  industry  and 
frugalit}^  he  has  acquired  much  success  as  a  farmer 
and  nurseryman.  He  is  unmarried  and  a  member  of 
the  Mennonite  church  at  Deep  Run. 

V.  Martin  F.  Krout,  born  in  Bucks  Co.,  Pa.,  Nov. 
3,  1838;  died  Apr.  20,  1876.  He  lived  with  his  pa- 
rents and  worked  on  the  farm  until  he  was  twenty- 
one  years  of  age.  He  then  took  a  position  in  a  mer- 
cantile house  in  Philadelphia,  where  during  his  four 
years  of  service,  he  became  thoroughly  conversant 
with  the"  business  and  enjoyed  the  confidence  of  all. 
In  1862  he  went  to  River  Styx,  Ohio,  and  engaged  in 
Tanning,  in  which  business  he  continued  for  a  time. 
He  then  purchased  a  farm  near  that  town,  and  settled 
upon  it,  where  he  remained  until  his  death.  He  mar- 
ried Rebecca,  daughter  of  Dr.  Wm.  Andrews,  of 
River  Styx,  Ohio,  Oct.  2,  1861.  Children:  James 
and  Wm,  Arthur.

Feb.  2,  1813.  He  lived  at  home  until  he'  was  nine- 
teen years  of  age.  He  then  entered  the  North  Wales 
Institute  to  obtain  a  more  thorouoh  education  than 
the  public  schools  afforded.  Here  he  remained  about 
a  year.  In  the  Fall  of  1862  he  commenced  teaching, 
and  until  1868  taught  successively  in  the  Deep  Run, 
Rocky  Ridge,  Algards,  Sellersville  and  Plumstead- 
ville  Schools.  In  1868  he  took  charge  of  the  West 
Bethlehem  Schools,  Lehigh  Co. ,  and  in  1860  accepted 
the  Principalship  of  Coplay  schools,  in  the  same  Co. 
Here  he  remained  from  Sept.  '69  to  June  '83,  when 
he  asked  to  be  relieved  to  become  the  accountant  and 
cashier  for  Coplay,  Iron  Co.  This  position  he  held 
from  July  '83  to  Oct.  '88.  In  the  Fall  of  1889  he 
took  charge  of  the  Borough  Schools  of  Emlenton, 
Venango  Co.,  P.,  where,  as  Principal,  he  reorganized 
the  school  system,  and  introduced  a  number  of  im- 
portant changes  for  the  improvement  of  the  Public 
schools  in  that  nnmicipality.  Having  been  offered  still 
better  inducements  l)y  the  Board  of  Education  of  the 
Lehighton  Borough  Schools,  he  will  in  the  future 
have  the  Principalship  and  supervision  of  the  schools 
of  that  growing  town  on  the  Lehigh.  Through  all 
these  years  of  teaching  there  is  one  idea  that  has 
never  been  lost  sight  of,  namely,  that  of  self-im- 
provement. The  schooling  at  the  academy  was  only 
the  beginning  of  a  life  of  study.  In  1876  he  appeared 
before  the  State  Board  of  Examiners,  passed  the 
examination  an  J  was  granted  a  Normal  Certificate  as 
.  Teacher  of  Didactics.  He  found  much  pleasure  in 
pursuing  a  course  of  general  studies  in  science  and 
language,  and  in  1877  Franklin  and  ]\Iarshall  College 
recognized  his  industry  as  a  student  and  conferred  on 
him  the  Honorary  Degree  of  A.  M.  He  has  been  a 
member  of  the  Pennsjdvania  State  Teachers'  Asst'n 
since  1877,  and  an  active  member  of  the  Touvey  Bo- 
tanical Club  of  Columbia  College,  New  York  City, 
since  Oct,  1S81.  Having  the  confidence  of  the  peo-

qiicntly  called  upon  to  fill  positions  of  honor  and 
responsibility.  He  was  the  first  commissioned  Justice 
of  the  Peace  for  this  Borough,  and  has  continuously 
held  this  office  from  1869  to  1890.  He  was  Secretary 
of  the  Town  Council  for  thirteen  years,  and  a  school 
Director  while  serving  the  Coplay  Iron  Co.  The 
Judges  of  the  Courts  frequently  appointed  him  to 
serve  on  road  juries  and  commissions  and  there  are 
few  townships  in  Lehigh  Co.,  in  which  he  has  not 
been  called  to  execute  these  appointments.  Being  a 
member  of  the  Eef.  ch.  he  took  an  active  interest  in 
the  founding  of  Trinity  Congregation,  at  Cophiy,  in 
1872.  He  served  as  deacon  and  was  for  many  years 
the  Sec'y  of  the  Consistory.  He  was  the  Superin- 
tendent of  the  Sabbath  Schools  of  this  congregation

1776,  died  Jan.  9,  1840. — He  lived  and  died  on  the 
Old  JFretz'  homestead,  in  Bedminster  Twp.  The  farm 
consisting  of  about  255  acres  he  inherited  from  his 
father.  He  was  an  honest,  upright  citizen,  a  con- 
scientious Christian,  and  much  esteemed  by  the  com- 
munity in  which  he  lived.  It  is  related  that  while  he 
was  working  in  the  field  one  day,  a  man  rode  up,  and 
seeing  his  fine  cows,  wanted  to  buy  one,  but  he  did 
not  want  to  sell.  The  man  however  insisted  and 
asked  him  to  set  a  price.  He  then  thought  that  if  he 
should  ask  double  what  the  cow  was  worth,  the  man 
would  leave  without  buying.  But  contrary  to  his 
expectation,  the  man  laid  down  the  money  and  drove 
the  cow  off.  After  the  man  was  gone,  he  talked  the 
matter  over  with  his  wife,  and  they  decided  it  was 
"usury."  So  he  mounted  a  horse,  rode  after  the  man, 
and  gave  him  back  half  of  the  money,  saying,  "I 
don't  want  to  be  damned  for  a  cow."  He  and  his  wife 
were  members  of  the  Mennonite  church  at  Deep  Run, 
of  which  he  was  for  many  years  a  deacon.  Children: 
Anna,  Rebecca,  Jacob,  Christian,  John,  Isaac,  Martin,

In  1856  his  parents  moved  to  Bedminster  Twp.,  to  the 
farm  of  his  Grandfather  Christian,  where  his  father 


—  224  — 

was  born  and  brought  up,  and  which,  upon  the  death 
of  Christian  passed  into  the  hands  of  EI3',  who  still 
(1889)  owns  it.  Allen  now  resides  thereon.  When  17 
years  old  he  was  sent  by  his  parents  to  the  Mennonite 
seminary  at  Wadsworth,  Ohio.  He  subsequently  at- 
tended one  term  at  the  Excelsior  Normal  Institute  at 
Carversville,  Pa. ;  after  which  he  taught  school  eleven 
terms,  working  on  his  father's  farm  during  the  sum- 
mer months.  •  On  Sept.  18,  1880,  he  was  mrd.  to  Sarah 
(daughter  of  Abraham  L.  Leatherman,  also  Fretz" 
descendants,  see—).  She  died  Mar.  21,  1882.  An  in- 
fant son  died  soon  after  birth  without  name.  In  the 
fall  of  1882  he  accepted  the  nomination  of  the  Repub- 
lican party  as  a  candidate  to  the  State  Legislature, 
which  was  tendered  him,  but  his  party  being  in  the 
minority  in  that  year's  campaign,  he  was,  with  the 
rest  of  the  ticket,  defeated.  In  1883  the  Second  Men- 
nonite church  at  Deep  Run  called  him  to  be  their 
minister,  and  he  was  accordingly  ordained  by  Bish. 
Moses  Gottschall  on  Oct.  13,  1883,  and  installed  pas- 
tor of  the  same.  Feeling  the  pressing  need  of  an 
English  paper  in  the  interests  of  his  branch  of  the 
Mennonite  church,  he,  with  the  aid  of  N.  B.  Grobb, 
pastor  of  the  church  in  Philadelphia,  succeeded  in 
Oct.  1885,  in  getting  out  the  prospectus  of  "TAe 
Mennonite^''  which  was  laid  before  the  conference  and 
accepted  as  one  of  the  periodicals  of  the  church.  He 
is  still  one  of  the  editors  of  the  paper,  which  has 
steadily  increased  in  popularity  and  circulation  since 
it  was  started.  On  Mar.  5,  1884,  he  was  mrd.  to 
Anna,  daughter  of  Jacob  F.  Rittenhouse,  of  Campden,

V.  Jacob  Freeman  Hendricks,  A.  M.,  born  May  15, 
1854.  He  was  the  youngest  and  is  now  the  only  sur- 
viving child.  He  was  given  the  patriarchal  name  of 
Jacob,  being  named  after  his  paternal  grandfather. 
When  the  boy  became  of  school  age,  he  was  sent  to 
the  public  school  of  the  vicinity.  In  1862,  through 
the  visitation  of  death,  of  seven  children  but  two,  the 
oldest  and  youngest,  were  left.  A  few  months  later, 
marriage  having  claimed  the  oldest,  led  her  forth 
from  beneath  the  parental  roof,  leaving  the  subject 
of  the  sketch  the  only  child  at  the  family  fireside.  In 
'65  his  father  sold  the  farm  on  which  he  had  lived  for 
many  years,  and  on  which  he  had  reared  his  children 
and  bought  a  property  near  the  village  of  Line  Lex- 
ington, in  Hilltown  township,  and  moved  thereon. 
Here  the  boy  resumed  his  attendance  at  public 
school,  assisting  his  father  when  school  was  not  in 
session  in  the  work  on  the  farm  and  in  the  chores 
about  the  place.  Between  '65  and  '70,  he  induced  his 
father  to  send  him  for  several  short  terms  to  the  Line 
Lexington  Seminary,  then  a  select  school  for  boys 
and  girls,  instead  of  the  public  school.  In  the  spring 
of  '70,  thirsting  for  wider   educational  advantages,  he 


—  234  — 

induced  his  father  to  send  him  to  the  Excelsior  Nor- 
mal Institute  at  Carversville,  then  under  the  Princi- 
palship  of  Rev.  F.  R.  S.  Hunsicker,  D.  D.  After  a 
twelve  weeks  attendance  at  this  school,  he  entered 
the  profession  of  teaching,  taking  charge  of  a  school 
in  Hilltown  Twp.,  and  continued  to  teach  in  that 
township  for  four  successive  terms.  In  the  spring  of 
'71  he  entered  the  Millersville  State  Normal  School 
and  remained  there  twelve  weeks.  In  the  spring  of 
'74  he  returned  to  that  school  and  took  a  short  term. 
In  the  fall  of  that  year  he  was  examined  by  the 
County  Superintendent  of  Lehigh  County,  apd 
granted  a  provisional  certificate,  having  one  in  every 
branch.  He  was  thereupon  elected  principal  of  the 
Schools  of  Rittersville,  in  that  county.  After  teach- 
ing there  several  months  he  was  granted  a  profes- 
sional certificate.  In  the  spring  of  '75  he  returned  to 
Millersville  to  finish  his  course,  graduating  with 
honors  in  the  class  of  '76,  and  the  degree  of  Bachelor 
of  the  Elements.  In  the  fall  of  '76  he  took  charge 
of  a  school  at  Breinigsville,  Lehigh  County.  During 
this  term  he  gained  prominence  among  the  teach- 
ers of  the  county.  At  the  County  Teacher's  Institute 
of  that  year,  he  was  made  Secretary  of  the  Institute, 
appointed  to  open  the  discussion  on  one  of  the  topics, 
chosen  delegate  to  the  State  Teacher's  Association 
and  selected  as  one  of  the  evening  lecturers.  In  the 
fall  of  '77  he  took  charge  of  a  school  in  East  Donegal 
Township,  Lancaster  County.  During  this  term  he 
gave  some  attention  to  public  lecturing,  appearing, 
among  other  audiences,  before  the  Page  Literary 
Society  of  Millersville.  At  the  commencement  of 
'79  he  received  from  his  Alma  Mater  the  degree  of 
Master  of  the  Elements.  In  the  fall  of  '78  he  was 
elected  teacher  of  the  Intermediate  Department  of  the 
Doylestown  Borough  Public  Schools,  and  before  the 
close  of  the  term  was  made  Principal  and  Borough 
Superintendent.  In  the  summer  of  '79,  after  win- 
ning golden  testimonials  as  a  teacher,  he  left  the 
school  room  and  turned  his  face  in  the  direction  of 
the  legal  profession.  He  entered  the  office  of  Alfred 
Fackentball,  Esq.,  and  was   duly   registered  as  a 


-  235  — 

student  at  law.  In  '81  he  was  admitted  to  the  Bucks 
County  Bar,  and  at  once  began  the  practice  of  law  at 
the  County  Capitol.  For  reasons  he  has  never  yet 
made  known  he  now  adopted  as  a  middle  name,  the 
name  Freeraan^  writing  his  name  J.  Freeman  Hen- 
dricks. In  the  spring  of  '85,  Doylestown  Borough 
elected  him  Justice  of  the  Peace  by  an  overwhelming 
majority,  when  his  party  was  hopelessly  in  the 
minority.  The  same  year  he  was  admitted  to  the 
Bryant  Literary  Union  of  New  York,  and  again  he 
entered  the  lecture  field.  Since  then  he  has  appeared 
before  County  Teacher's  Institutes  and  other  dis- 
tinguished audiences,  and  won  the  strongest  testi- 
monials. At  the  commencement  of  '86  Ursinus  Col- 
lege conferred  on  him  the  honorary  degree  of  Master 
of  Arts.  He  is  a  Republican  in  politics,  and  a  Presbyte- 
rian in  religion.  He  still  resides  in  Doylestown, 
figuring  as  a  lawyer.  Justice  and  lecturer.

V.  Clayton  D.  Fretz,  M.  D.,  son  of  Abraham  and 
Sarah  (iDetweiler)  Fretz,  was  born  on  the  old  John 
Fretz'  homestead  in  Bedminster,  Nov.  16,  1844.  At 
the  age  of  six  years  his  mother  died  of  a  lingering 
illness.  He  remained  at  home  with  his  father  until 
the  spring  of  1855,  when  he  was  hired  out  on  the 
farm  of  the  late  Jonas  Meyers,  of  Bedminster,  where 
he  remained  nearly  two  years.  The  following  year  he 
was  with  the  late  Reuben  Stover,  and  the  succeeding 
year  with  Aaron  Tyson,  working  on  the  farm  in  the 
summer  months  and  attending  school  at  Bedminster, 
during  the  winter  terms.  His  father  having  resumed 
farming  he  returned  home  in  the  spring  of  1859,  and 
assisted  on  the  farm,  attending  school  during  the 
winter  months  at  Fretz  Valley.  In  the  spring  of  1862 
he  attended  a  term  at  "The  North  Wales  Institute," 
under  the  principalship  of  A.  S.  Overholt.  He  also 
attended  the  spring  term  of  1863,  at  the  same  insti- 
tution. In  the  summer  of  1864  he  took  a  course  at 
'"Eastman  Business  College"  at  Poughkepsie,  N.  Y., 
graduating  July  12.  In  the  Antumn  of  1862,  he 
secured  a  certificate  of  County  Superintendent  S.  S. 
Overholt,  and  taught  his  first  term  of  school  in  the 
"Old  Octagon"  school  house,  near  Fountain ville. 
He  continued  teaching  for  the  next  three  years — 
teaching  at  the  Monroe  school,  Durham;  and  the 
Fretz  Valley  school,  Bedminster,  and  closing  his 
career  as  teacher  at  Croufs  school,  Rockhill.  Dur- 
ing this  last  term  he  commenced  reading  medicine 
under  his  preceptor,  Dr.  1.  S.  Moyer,  then  at  Plum- 
steadville,  Bucks  Co.  After  the  close  of  the  school 
term  he  devoted  all  his  time  to  medicine,  and  entered 
the  oflice  of  his  preceptor  as  a  regular  student,  and 
in  the  autumn  of  1866  matriculated  at  the  Medical 
Department  of  the  University  of  Pennsylvania,  Phil-

adelphia.  Durino;  the  succeeding  two  years  he  applied 
himself  closely  to  study,  attended  the  lectures,  and 
g;raduated  Mar,  18,  1868.  Ten  days  thereafter,  on 
the  23d  of  March,  he  located  at  Sellersville,  Pa.,  and 
entered  into  partnership  with  Dr.  Nelson  Applebach, 
for  the  practice  of  his  profession.  He  met  with  suc- 
cess, and  in  a  few  years  succeeded  in  acquiring  a 
lucrative  practice,  and  establishing  himself  in  the 
conlidence  and  esteem  of  the  community.  In  the 
autumn  of  1871,  he  dissolved  the  business  partner- 
ship with  Dr.  Applebach  to  enter  into  a  life  partner- 
ship with  Miss  Kate  B.  Everhart,  daughter  of  the 
late  Dr.  Charles  W.  Everhart,  of  Sellersville. — The 
study  of  Botany  and  the  collection  of  specimens  of 
plants  and  flowers  has  been  one  of  his  favorite  pur- 
suits. He  has  added  many  new  and  rare  plants  to 
the  known  flora  of  Bucks  Co.,  besides  having  dis- 
covered one  new  to  the  state  flora,  and  also  a 
variety  not  before  known  to  science.  His  herbarium 
not  only  contains  a  complete  set  of  all  the  plants  in 
Bucks  Co.,  but  a  very  large  majority  of  the  plants 
growing  east  of  the  Mississippi,  including  not  less 
than  ten  thousand  specimens  and  about  four  thousand 
diffierent  species  and  varieties. — Dr.  Fretz  is  a  mem-

Isaac  mrd.  his  second  wife,  Veronica  Kratz,  of  Skip-

William,  Mahlon,  Mary,  Samuel.  In  1822  Isaac  mrd. 
his  third  wife,  Betsey  Landis.  She  was  born  Nov.  16, 
1799;  died  Feb.  13,  1887.  In  early  life  Isaac  Fretz 
followed  the  vocation  of  farmer.  He  owned  and  lived 
on  the  farm  in  Tinicum  Twp. ,  now  owned  and  occu- 
pied by  Henry  F.  Myers.  He  also  for  a  time  had 
teams  on  the  road  freighting  goods  from  Philadelphia 
to  Easton,  Bethlehem,  and  Nazareth,  with  an  occa- 
sional visit  to  Pittsburg  and  other  points  west.  Dur- 
ing his  absence  from  home  Mar.  4,  1804,  his  barn 
was  struck  by  lightning  and  burned.  On  this  occasion 
his  wife  Veronica,  displayed  heroic  energy,  in  rescu- 
ing horses  and  cattle  from  the  burning  building,  and 
undoubtedly  would  have  perished  herself  in  the 
flames,  had  she  not  at  last  been  held  back  by  the 
neighbors.  In  spite  of  all  efforts  to  rescue  the  cattle 
from  the  flames,  one  horse  and  fourteen  (some  say  21) 
head  of  cattle  perished.  In  1815,  Isaac  built  what  is 
now  known  as  the  Fretz  Valley  Mill,  on  the  Tohickon 
Creek,  and  in  addition  to  farming  operated  the  mill. 
During  his  busy  life  he  succeeded  to  competency,  and 
accumulated  nearly  300  acres  of  land.  He  and  wives 
were  members  of  the  Mennonite  church.  He,  how- 
ever, respected  all  denominations,  and  would  never 
(without  reproof)  allow  any  one  in  his  presence  to 
speak  lightly  of  any  church,  or  church  ordinance.

he  commenced  to  learn  the  shoemaking  trade,  and  as 
was  the  custom  at  that  time,  went  from  house  to 
house  carrying  his  "kit"  with  him.  At  the  age  of 
twenty-one,  he  apprenticed  himself  to  the  milling 
trade  which  he  followed  many  years.  About  1818  he, 
in  company  with  Samuel,  son  of  "lame  Anthony 
Fretz,  and  "Velvet"  Henry  Fretz,  made  a  trip  to 
Canada,  to  visit  friends  and  relatives  there.  The 
entire  trip  was  made  on  foot,  and  was  attended  with

tian religion,  and  lead  them  heavenward.  Children:

V.  Samuel  Jennings  Denyer,  born  in  Baltimore,  Md., 
May  22,  1822.  Mrd.  Zerelda  Ann  Singleton,  of  Lou- 
isiana, Oct.,  17,  1849.  During  his  eventful  life  he  was

the  "Santa  Fe  Expedition,"  under  Gen.  Hugh  M'Leod. 
After  undergoing  many  hardships,  the  expedition 
reached  their  destination  in  Sept.,  with  the  commis- 
sioners who  were  to  treat  with  the  Mexicans.  They 
were  received  with  every  appearance  of  friendship. 
A  bountiful  meal  provided,  and  while  they  were  en- 
joying it  they  were  disarmed  by  the  treacherous  Mex- 
icans, taken  prisoners,  and  marched  barefooted,  with 
bleeding  feet  that  stained  the  stones  and  snow,  at 
every  step,  and  were  driven  into  sheep  cotes,  with 
one  blanket  for  bed  and  covering.  When  on  the 
march  they  were  required  to  keep  up  with  the 
mounted  officers,  or  be  cut  down  by  their  captors. 
Mr.  Denyer,  in  helping  one  of  his  comrades,  who  was 
near  fainting  from  fatigue  and  weakness,  to  some  wa- 
ter, got  a  little  behind  and  received  a  cut  from  a 
sword  in  his  side,  the  scar  of  which  he  carried  to  the

grave.  He  was  imprisoned  at  Puebla,  where  he  re- 
mained nearly  a  year.  In  the  spring  of  1843,  he  re- 
turned to  Pennsylvania,  working  his  passage  to  New 
York.  In  1858  he  moved  to  Burnett  Co.,  and  from 
there  to  Llano  Co.,  Texas,  where  he  followed  stock- 
raising.  Apr.  30,  1861,  while  out  hunting  for  a  lost 
cow,  he  was  treacherously  shot  by  an  Indian.  At  the 
time  of  his  death  he  was  preparing  himself  for  the 
ministry  of  the  M.  E.  church.  South.  Zerelda,  his 
wife,  died  in  1867.  The  following  is  a  a  poem  com- 
posed and  dedicated  to  the  memory  of  "Mother," 
beloved  wife  of  Samuel  J.  Denyer,  by  their  youngest 
child,  Mrs.  Ida  E.  S.  Green. 

Mother!  ah,  how  oft  that  name 

Our  loving  hearts  have  thrilled, 
It  soothes  to  rest  in  hours  of  pain, 

Though  death  her  pulse  has  stilled 

In  life  we  were  her  constant  care; 

And  often  while  we  slept, 
She  o'er  us  bent  in  silent! prayer. 

While  Indians  through  our  barley  crept. 

They  had  her  loved  companion  slain. 

Disguised  in'white-men's'clothes. 
Whom  he  mistook  for  neighboring  friends, 

Till  they  had  strung'their  bows. 

And  then  upon  that  April  morn. 

When  death  his  frame  had  chilled, 
She  stood  beside  that  lifeless  form. 

Her  heart  with  anguish  filled. 

And  when  we  laid  him  in  the  tomb. 

And  sadly  turned  awa}-, 
Our'mother  knew  that  she  alone, 

Must  guard  us  night  and  day. 

Nor  did  she  through  those  years  of  grief 

E'er  murmur  or  repine. 
But  sought  in  prayer  that  sweet  relief 

Which  true  believers  find. 

And  when  consumption  seized  her  child. 

The  first  that  God  had  given. 
She  closed  in  death  those  eyes  so  mild, 

And  said,  "  We'll  meet  in  heaven." 

One  year  elapsed,  then  mother  left, 

To  join  the  host  above. 
And  four  small  children  werf  befeft 

Of  either  parents'  love, 


—  329  — 

And  now  those  loved  ones  round  the  throne 

Are  beckoning  us  away; 
Dear  brothers,  sisters,  kindred  ones, 

Let  us  the  call  obey. 

Yes!  let  us  follow  in  the  path 

This  noble  woman  trod; 
Perform  oui  duty  here  on  earth, 
But  lean  upon  our  God.

BARBARA  FRETZ,   DAUGHTER  OF 
WEAVER  JOHN. 


II.  Barbara  Fretz,  youngest  child  of  '"Weaver" 
John,  and  Maria  Fretz,  born — ;  died — .  Nothing  is 
known  of  her.    It  is  probable  that  she  never  married. 


CHRISTIAN  FRETZ, 
BROTHER  OF  WEAVER  JOHN. 


(Tinicum  Branch.) 


I.  Christian  Fretz  (brother  of  "Weaver"  John), 
settled  in  Tinicum  Twp. ,  Bucks  Co. ,  Pa. ,  along  the 
Tinicum  creek,  at  the  place  now  known  as  Heaney's 
Mill.  The  house  stood  on  the  opposite  side  of  the 
road,  a  short  distance  from  the  present  one.  The 
farm  originally  contained  about  140  acres,  and  is 
now  divided  into  three  tracts.  The  present  house  is 
of  stone,  was  built  by  his  son  Christian,  and  is  now 
over  one  hundred  years  old.  The  homestead  with 
about  40  acres  of  the  original  tract,  is  owned  and* 
occupied  by  Joseph  M.  Hockman.  Sixty-five  acres 
are  owned  by  Henry  S.  Wolfinger,  and  25  acres  by^ 
—  Johnson.  It  is  probable  that  some  of  his  children 
scattered  early,  were  lost  sight  of  and  forgotten,  so 
that  nothing  definite  is  known  of  but  three  or  four 
of  them,  although  there  are  slight  evidences  of  others. 
So  far,  in  our  investigations,  we  have  not  learned  that 
he  had  any  daughters.  His  children  that  are  known 
were:  Abraham,  Mark,  Christian  Daniel.  Those  who 
probably  were  or  are  supposed  to  have  been  his  chil- 
dren, are:  John,  Jacob,  Henry. 


DESCENDANTS  OF  ABRAHAM  FRETZ,    SON 
OF  CHRISTIAN  FRETZ   OF  TINICUM. 


II.  Abraham  Fretz  (son  of  Christian  Fretz,  of  Tini- 
cum).  The  date  of  his  birth  is  not  known,  but  he  was 
born  as  early  as  1745,  or  before  that  date.  When  he 
died  is  not  known.  He  was  married  to  Dorothea 
Kulp**— .  In  1775  he  purchased  a  farm  in  Bedminster 
Twp. ,  .consisting  of  224  acres,  of  Alexander  Brown, 
who  purchased  it  from  Richard  and  Thomas  Penn 
(Governors  and  Esqs.),  in  1758.  The  farm  is  now  di- 
vided into  four  farms,  owned  and  occupied  as  follows: 
Jacob  F.  Hockman,  on  the  north;  Levi  Hockman  on 
the  north-east;  and  Anthony  R.  Fretz  and  Quincy  A, 
Fretz  oij  the  south-west.  It  is  quite  probable  that 
Abraham  Fretz  and  his  wife  were  among  the  early 
worshipers  of  the  Mennonite  church  at  Deep  Run, 
and  buried  there.  Their  children  were:  Judith,  Eliza- 
beth, Henry,  Joseph,  Esther,  Anna,  Barbara. 

III.  Judith  Fretz,  born  Oct.  2,  1767;  died  Nov.  7, 
1847.  Mrd.  John  Meyer  (his  second  wife)  July  3, 
1788.  He  died  July  10,  1814.  They  lived  on  a  farm 
on  the  Durham  road,  S.  E.  of  Pipersville.  They  were 
members  of  the  Mennonite  ch.  Children:  Abraham, 
John,  Christian,  Joseph,  Jacob,  Christian,  William, 
Dorothea,  Samuel,  Isaac. 

*  It  is  rather  remarkable  that  the  three  brothers,  Abraham, 
Mark  and  Christian  Fretz,  married  three  sisters,  viz:  Dorothea, 
Gertrude,  and  Judith  Kulp;  and  a  cousin,  John  Fretz  of  the 
Bedminster  Branch,  who  emigrated  to  Canada,  married  Mary 
Kulp,  also  a  sister  of  the  above.

he  attended  the  Mennonite  Seminary,  at  Wadsworth, 
Ohio,  for  a  year,  and  began  teaching  in  the  public

two  years  he  taught  the  Pipersville  school,  and  during 
the  summer  term  attended  the  Millersville  State  Nor- 
mal School.  In  Sept.  1879  he  again  entered  the  Nor-

was  tendered  and  accepted  the  position  of  assistant 
Principal  of  the  Tressler  Orphan's  Home  at  Loysville, 
Perry  Co.,  Pa.  After  filling  the  responsible  position 
very  acceptably  to  the  Board  of  Trustees  for  two 
years,  he  resigned,  and  spent  several  months  travel- 
ing, visiting  numerous  national"  cemeteries,  and  old 
battle  fields,  and  various  places  of  interest  in  some  of 
the  Southern  States.  In  Sept.  1882,  he  entered  the

institution  he  graduated  as  Physician  and  Surgeon  in 
Mar.  1885.  Returning  East,  he,  in  order  to  become  a 
practicing  physician  in  Pa.,  passed  a  creditable  ex- 
amination at  the  Medico  Chirurgical  College  of  Phila- 
delphia, and  since  Apr.  1885,  he  has  been  a  practicing 
physician  and  surgeon  at  Blooming  Glen,  where  by 
good  success  and  his  ambition  to  become  more  pro- 
ficient in  his  profession,  he  has  gained  the  confidence 
of  the  people,  and  is  enjoying  a  lucrative  practice.
